The4thWorkshoponInformationSecurityApplications(WISA2003)wassp- sored by means of the subsequent Korean enterprises and govt our bodies: the Korea Institute of knowledge defense and Cryptology (KIISC), the Electronics and TelecommunicationsResearchInstitute(ETRI),andtheMinistryofInformation and verbal exchange (MIC). The workshop used to be held in Jeju Island, Korea - ring August 25–27, 2003. This overseas workshop supplied considerable technical classes masking a wide spectrum of knowledge protection purposes. topics lined integrated network/mobile safeguard, digital trade protection, electronic rights administration, intrusion detection, safe structures and purposes, bio- trics and human interfaces, public key cryptography, and utilized cryptography. this system committee obtained 2 hundred papers from 23 nations (representing such a lot geographic components the place defense and utilized cryptography learn is c- ductedthroughouttheworld).Eachsubmittedpaperwaspeer-reviewedbythree software committee individuals. This yr, we had tracks: lengthy and brief p- sentation tracks. We chosen 36 papers for the lengthy presentation tune and 34 papers for the fast presentation tracks. This quantity includes revised types of papers authorised for the lengthy presentation tune. we wish to notice that obtaining authorised to either tracks was once an success to be happy with, given the aggressive nature of WISA this 12 months. Papers within the brief presentation music have been in simple terms released within the WISA preproceedings as initial notes; ext- dedversionsofthesenotesmaybepublishedbyfutureconferencesorworkshops.
